16 March 2018 - 18 March 2018
Department of Architecture and Planning is organizing an International conference on URBAN SUSTAINABILITY: EMERGING TRENDS, THEMES, CONCEPTS & PRACTICES (ICUS 2018)
The world is witnessing irreversible trend of increasing urbanization but failure to manage its impact is threatening human health, environmental quality and urban productivity. Urban sustainability, therefore, is at the centre stage in policy discussions at the global, regional or local level. However, priorities in a move towards sustainable development differ greatly amongst nations, regions and cities due to the extent and impact of sustainability related problems, their preparedness and their place in the development continuum. At this juncture it is imperative to examine interrelationship between assimilative and supportive capacities of environment, costs and benefits of alternative development interventions; in the light of given socio-cultural, institutional and political factors. In this backdrop, conference is an attempt to seek convergence of ideas on urban sustainability, explore models of urban development and gain knowledge of appropriate tools and techniques for effective planning, governance and management of cities.
